Re: Bringing back an old game - Name the TrekLit Quote

The "trilogy" clue helped to narrow down the choices, and when I went back to look at the quote, the "ore transports" set off a pinging sound in my head.

I suppose I should post the quote now.

One more duty to perform. "Commander," he said, his voice no more than a wheeze, "you have the conn." There. He'd left his ship in the hands of the most capable first officer in the fleet. Everything was all right, now. With effort, he drew in one more uneven breath. "See to the safety..." he began, but then everything went black and silent.
He didn't see Commander Shelby blink hard, then reach down gently to close her captain's eyes. He didn't hear her voice break a little as she completed his final order.
"...of all hands. Yes, sir."
"We fall short of our aspirations all the time. What matters is that we keep trying." - Admiral Kathryn Janeway, Atonement
